Cardinals don’t think Tyrann Mathieu will be ready for camp


The Cardinals lost safety Tyrann Mathieu to a torn ACL and LCL last December, creating some doubt about his status for the start of the 2014 season.

That question will likely remain unanswered into the summer. Mathieu said Wednesday that he’s pushing to be ready for the start of training camp, but coach Bruce Arians said it is more likely that Mathieu will be sidelined when camp gets underway.

“I think Ty is going to up to the wire,” Arians said, via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. “I still anticipate him on PUP, but he refuses to believe it. That’s a good thing.”

Mathieu and the Cardinals feel he’s on schedule to make it back in time for the start of the season, but there’s a lot of time between now and September for a snag in his rehab to slow things down. With Yeremiah Bell still weighing whether or not he wants to return, the Cardinals have Rashad Johnson and Tony Jefferson as their top safeties until Mathieu’s back at full speed.

    That’s okay, according to the Cards fan they don’t need him because Arenas is so awesome. At least that’s the way they told it last year when they signed him. I’m sure they have a different opinion of Javier this year.

    Take it slow. I would like every player to take a year off after an acl, achilles, etc. Nowadays you can play until your mid 30s, – tear it again and you’ll never be the same.

    I’m a Seahawks fan and I really wanted us to pick up Mathieu; hopefully he can get back to playing sooner than later. Exciting player to watch.

    RAMS fan here. Just want you cardinal fans to know .We will kick your ass both times we play this season. On our way to the division title, and eventual Super Bowl championship. Pass this on to the Seahawks, and the last place whiners. That’s right San Fran sucks again. LETS GO RAMS
